I think your best bet would be a good HOB filter or a canister filter if you want a lot of filtration. They're just easier to service and healthier for your aquarium in the long run.
So here's the real question. What are you going to put in them? :)
As far as the filter goes, I'm up in the air about the under gravel setup. I tried it one other time and kept having problems with it. I am think of getting another "Tetra" Internal Whisper Filter. I have one in my other 20 gallon and it works wonderfully only thing about it is that its pretty bulky. As far as fish, well I have several guppies and a few sword tails expecting. I've been trying to get rid of my guppies (all fancy) but the local shop's haven't been wanting any. I've been thinking about a couple more mollies and a few platties (maybe try a betta in a community)they always look sad in the cups at the stores.
I currently have 9 swordtails and 2 white mollies in a 20 gallon.
